SO not ready to let go.

June 16th, 2010

Remember when I talked about Derek going to school?  Well, apparently I had forgotten about it. UGH!!!  I made reservations for a 2 night getaway for the week that he starts school.  I told my mom tonight that rather than change the reservations, I just wasn’t going to send him to school.  I was only half kidding.  It seems silly to be so upset about 2.5 hours a day.  But, it has already put a damper on things.  I know that he is going to learn lots of new things….and I hope he enjoys it.  BUT.

So, tomorrow I am going to be back with a To-Do list for the summer.  I am going to make sure we make the most of the time we have before he goes to school.

1. I hit 1000 sales in my Etsy shop over the weekend.  Thank you to all  of my wonderful customers!!!

2. Last week we went and picked strawberries.



3. Derek took the job pretty seriously.


4. While Lucas had fun attempting to do somersaults down the rows.


5. Either way, I think they both had a good time.


6.  And I was happy because I got a new favorite picture of my two boys.  This was not posed at all.  I was just trying to get a picture of them walking through the patch and this is what I got. 🙂

7. We had a busy weekend.  I was gone 3 nights in a row and didn’t get to put the boys to bed. 🙁  As usual, they handled it better than I did.

8. Friday night we went to dinner to celebrate my friend Mandi’s birthday.  We had a wonderful dinner at David’s Bistro. I had my all time favorite meal, Chilean Sea Bass.  So good!  Here’s a picture of Dan (my husband), Mandi and me.


9. Saturday night we attended a beautiful wedding.  The boys slept over at Auntie Kim’s house and had lots of fun.


10. Sunday I went to see Sheryl Crow and Colbie Caillat. Despite the rain we had a great time!


Catch My Party!

Thanks to Catch My Party for including my party in their Party of the Day


Stanley Cup Champions!!

June 10th, 2010


I can’t say that I am a fan of hockey, but it sure has been fun watching the post season play.  Now…if we could just get that other Chicago team to win a championship!

1.  How do Tuesday’s come so fast?  I have really good intentions of posting the other 6 days of the week.  It just doesn’t seem to happen.

2. I have a new job….catering! Well, not really. 🙂  I did help out a friend though.  She is a Realtor and wanted to serve something different than the typical sandwiches for a open house she was having.  We went with won ton wrappers formed into cups and filled with chicken salad.  Also, cute little fruit kabobs.  It was fun!


3.  Here’s a custom design I did for a friends little girl.  I love how it turned out.  I will be adding it to my shop soon.


4. Here’s another custom design for a train themed party.  Gotta add this to the shop too!


5.  It was a rainy day so we spent time coloring and painting….and glittering the house.  Seriously, how does glitter end up EVERYWHERE? I think it’s going to take years to get it all cleaned up.



6. I’m hoping the weather  cooperates for our Sheryl Crow concert on Sunday at Ravinia.

7. I wish there was some way to keep Play-Doh colors seperate.  I drive myself crazy trying to keep the kids from mixing the colors. I usually end up giving up, then the mixed up colors drive me nuts! Here’s Derek making trains.


8. Summer just started and we have just about every weekend planned.  That means the summer is going to fly by.

9.   I am determined to post something before next Tuesday rolls around again.

10.  Finally 10!  Gotta run…I have two little boys that need to go get haircuts!
